The View from the Hill on Saturday 3rd October
First of all I thought I'd let you see what progress Spider Man is making on trying to ensnare my car!
Spiders and webs, brings me onto an apology. I have been spying on you all, using the latest state of the art technology I have put a little thingy on the blog and every time you visit it shows me where you are etc.
I was pleasantly surprised by the number of visitors as well as the locations, all around the UK and then to my surprise Missouri and California!
As far as I know I do not have family in those locations, so I can only assume it is some poor unsuspecting person who has stumbled across the blog by mistake and now can't tear themselves away...or it's the FBI.
I love America! O say can you see, by the dawns early light....
I have already told you all about our trip there, three weeks driving around the West Coast and a week in Hawaii, perhaps a few more details will go down well across the pond.
Lo Angeles, went to Disney and did the Hollywood experience, saw Little Richard getting his star on the Walk of Fame. Saw the druggies hanging around Graumman's Chinese Theatre too!
San Diego, did the zoo and Sea World, stayed in a hotel with a beautiful pool, we went for a swim in the evening, it was nice and warm, the locals thought we were mad as it must be freezing. The room had a bed in that was so big, we could lay on opposite sides and reach out our arms without touching!
Palm Springs, very nice, very hot. Ordered a Cob Salad, they bought so much food it was unbelievable.
Phoenix, Death Valley, Grand Canyon (that was magic, we arrived at sunset and the colours were breathtaking) Las Vegas, the National Parks, San Francisco, Pebble Beach, back to Los Angeles and a tour of Universal Studios.
All of these places were amazing, they do have some wonderful scenery and some very nice people too.
There, hope that makes my US readers happy, that although I sometimes have a dig at their ex President and their religious fundamentalist idiot churches, I would love to visit again.
Lot's of work today, Tesco to visit, wall paper to finish stripping etc etc.
Windy weather but hopefully nicer tomorrow for the AHC thing at Rufford.
The View on what to View:
X Factor & Strictly in front of the fire, you choose the order.
